On December 12, 2019, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering (FME) – University of Science and Technology – the University of Danang (DUT) held a conference to collect the feedback from the stakeholders, including: the University, enterprises, alumni, graduate students, and students about designing a program in Mechanical Engineering (majoring in Aerospace Mechanics). This activity is a part of the university’s plan to develop a project to open a major in Aviation Mechanics, which is expected to enroll students in 2020. 

Attending the seminar, there were Dr. Phan Minh Duc – Vice Rector of DUT; Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Thi Dieu Hang – Deputy Director of Academic Affairs Department; Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pham Van Tuan – Director of Educational Testing and Quality Assurance Department; Dr. Nguyen Van Dong – Director of Student Affairs Department; Assoc. Prof. Dr. Luu Duc Binh – Dean of FME; Dr. Tao Quang Bang – Deputy Dean of FME, in charge of Aerospace Mechanics major; and lecturers of FME and Faculty of Transportation Mechanical Engineering, lecturers of faculties participating in the program; especially the attendance of representatives of enterprises such as: Vietnam Airlines Engineering Company (VAECO), Universal Alloy Corporation Vietnam (UAC), Middle Region Air Traffic Services Company (MIRATS), Chau Da Company Limited, SMC Corporation (Vietnam), and so on that are operating in the field of Mechanical Engineering in the Central and Central Highlands, and students, alumni, and graduate students of FME. 

At the conference, Dr. Phan Minh Duc – Vice Rector of DUT gave a speech informing that DUT received many feedback from enterprises, especially foreign enterprises investing in Vietnam in general and in the Central and Central Highlands region in particular about the demands for skilled human resources in the field of engineering. Therefore, DUT expected to open a new major of Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Aerospace Mechanics in order to meet the requirements of the market. On this occasion, he also wanted to express his gratitude and emphasize the role of the stakeholders in the accomplishment of the program. The program needs to focus on the quality of its learners, and guarantees jobs after training, and more importantly, satisfies the demands of the society. 

On behalf of the training program design team, Dr. Tao Quang Bang said that the goal of this program is to train high-quality human resources with great potentials in professional knowledge, skills, attitudes and working style in order to obtain different positions in mechanical engineering in general and aerospace mechanics in particular. 

It is expected that the program will start to enroll in 2020 and the enrollment number for each year is about 30 to 40 students, with four-year training period and 120 credits. Students are learning in a modernly equipped environment. In addition, professors from partner universities and other experts from business are also invited to be visiting lecturers. 

In addition, many opinions and comments from stakeholders about the content of the curriculum were collected during the conference. On behalf of the design team, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Luu Duc Binh – Dean of FME, explained and accepted the comments of stakeholders about the contents of the program to contribute to the completion of the project.
